Aluminium Rowing Shell Series

Mackay is offering new options to the Row / Shell Trailer marketplace with its lightweight Aluminium Trailer. Established nearly forty years ago, Mackay Multi-Link is a highly regarded manufacturer of boat, and other custom Trailers. Mackay has produced an innovative design concept to maximise the benfits of the aluminium trailer’s structure i.e. lightweight, corrosion resistance, aesthetics; while retaining strength, rigidity and practicality. Where Aluminium is not used, Mackay uses galvanised Steel axles, springs, hubs, U-bolts and fasteners – to maximise resistance against corrosion. With most clubs storing their trailers outdoors, having a ‘corrosion proof’ investment saves time and $ on maintenance and can last forever. The Mackay Aluminium Shell trailer provides major benefits:

  • Lighter than steel trailers, yet ultra strong.
  • Corrosion proof / and easy to maintain.
  • Brilliant Aesthetics.
  • Easily Adjustable axle positions – if centre of gravity needs to be changed – for improved towing dynamics.
  • Low to the ground for better towing.
  • Many other features including.
  1. Removable internal barriers.
  2. Removable extendable racks.
  3. Wrap around “C-Channel" rubber on racks so no chance of damaging the shells.
  4. Self draining floor / no no build up of water.
  5. Tie downs.
  6. Options for high level steps and other oar holder designs.
  7. Lockable storage box.
  • Single and Tandem axles options available.
  • Cost effective.
  • A lifetime investment.

The trailer allows towing of more sculls with (possibly) a smaller vehicle – given the weight benefits of the trailer; and also is easier to maintain.
